Yep I am running 2.6.1mm4 but with a SBLive. The only problems I had were
related to running the kernel modules with the old version of alsa

(Oh apart from some kernel panics which occurred when the computer tried
to remove snd_usb_audio at shutdown when my usb midi keyboard was on..
had to change the shutdown script to solve that one..)

Doesn't the a7v333-x have an Nforce chipset or some such?  I think there
are problems with this chipset at the moment.

I must say that though 2.6.1 is very nice, it does seem a little buggy
for a stable release.
